So you know … we all have our little morning routines. Turn the stereo on before getting into the shower, start the coffee before breakfast yada-yada-yada.
Part of that routine is floss, brush teeth, apply makeup, get dressed.
Since I live alone, there’s rarely (if anything) to distract me from my normal routine. Today – as I headed out the door I did the checklist:
- Lunch: check
- Coat, Hat & Gloves: check
- Magazine (emergency reading material should I have to go somewhere and wait in line): check
- Purse: check
- Phone: check (Mental note to self, listen to two voice messages from Gina on the way to work.)
- Cup of coffee: check
As I drive toward work, I listen to the messages from Gina. I call her – and we chat. As I listen and drive – I look in my rearview mirror.
Boy do my lips look pale. Washed out. Like they’re covered in foundation.
Gahhhh … I forgot to put on lipstick!
How does that happen? It’s not like it’s an UNUSUAL part of my daily routine.
It’s also true that I don’t carry lipstick in my purse. I wear the “all day” kind. That’s their claim and I’m willing to believe it.
So – guess who had to stop at the drug store and buy lipstick. *sigh*
You can just call me "pale-lips"
Mama said I'd lose my head
If it wasn't fastened on.
Today I guess it wasn't
'Cause while playing with my cousin
It fell off and rolled away
And now its gone.
And I can't look for it
'Cause my eyes are in it,
And I can't call to it
'Cause my mouth is on it
(Couldn't hear me anyway
'Cause my ears are on it),
Can't even think about it
'Cause my brain is in it.
So I guess I'll sit down
On this rock
And rest for just a minute…
